I am planning on building a "maxed out" F4 with the z-foil resistors too. Nice to see an example and get some feedback on how best to install.

F4 power amplifier
Default Preamp for F4

Another preamp that works well with the F4 is the S5 Electronics K-PL kit.
This was my first tube build and it was pretty easy. Needs a 200v power supply and 6.3v for filaments. Antek has a dual 140v and dual 6.3v secondaries.
I used a 175v version, but had to drop the voltage by ~40v. The 140v will get you closer with less fuss.

K-PL uses a 5670 triode tube, however member (audiowise) recommended the 6922 with a cathode cap. Said 6922 will halve the output impedance. I will be trying th 6922 as well with a 60uF MKP. As-is it sounds pretty good.
I upgraded the main board parts for $25.

Price is right. Basic Bud chassis and other parts came to under $200.
It is my opinion that it sound way better than the price suggests.

I build, therefore I am.
Do not create problems where there are none.
